Law Suits of the Offended
There are just so many law suits and litigations today based on offensive anything that the American courts are filled to overflowing. The most radical if not ridiculous are the cases depicting people offended by something somebody said, wore someplace or just a mere look that somebody supposedly gave another.
Personal expression has always been acceptable in the United States of America just as the freedom to speak what you think or believe. In the United States of America people’s rights to speak either for or against even the President of the United States of America is what makes America unique and desirable to most people in other countries where they would be beaten or killed for speaking out against something some high official said or did; this is an undeniable fact.
Unfortunately there are a few as within any race, religion and gender that simply could not just allow others to state their minds or simply be themselves and it was those few that appalled the rest of the nation by what they had done. If justice was not served it was not because the people of the United States of America in general did anything to keep justice from happening. However that justice goes for all and not just a certain few.
By telling an individual they cannot wear a specific tie or a specific piece of jewelry to work is like telling somebody they cannot wear their Hijab, Al-Amira, Shayla, Khimar, Chador, Niqib or the Burka in a public place either for a Muslim; the Kippah for the Jewish men; the Yarmulke or the Koppel for the Yiddish and so on. If carrying a Holy Bible and reading it silently in any public place is illegal then so should any and all other religious materials be as well. Remember the United States of America is a free country, not the country most people are accustomed to living in where there are stiff restrictions on such things and anyone straying from the restrictions dealt with by harsh means.
Christians came to America to get away from this kind of abuse and make no mistake; any religious restriction in the United States of America regarding Christianity is absolutely an abuse of power. The majority of African American’s are Christian Faith Based believers, most of the Latino, Spanish and the Mexican American’s are a Christian Faith Based believers as is the majority of the White American people a Christian Faith Based believer. Anybody that believes differently has always been welcome to live in America, but not to come into America and change the freedoms their ancestors have fought and died to obtain and protect with their sweat, blood and tears.
Many say that Christian’s offend them, well that works both ways when those new to the United States of America come in to change the American’s way of life. If you don’t agree with the American policy then go and live elsewhere and leave the United States; otherwise you are welcome to come and live as freely as the American’s live under the American laws, rules and regulations. That is the cry of the majority of the American people today.
As for the Atheists, there have always been non-believers and there always will be. Atheists cannot believe in what they can neither see nor feel, and if they cannot prove God’s existence through science, which many have and others debate; then they refuse to believe. Christian’s are not only accustomed to the Atheists; many look forward to debates with them. Both parties seem to learn a little bit more as time passes. Christian’s have even made concessions for Atheists, but if criminalizing Christian’s continues there is no telling where this bigotry will lead. Whatever footing the Atheists had gained since the 1950’s may well be headed to an abrupt end and prayers may well be restored into the public schools as well as other places.
These are the sentiments and words of eight out of every ten people I have personally spoken with over this past year; many on the internet and some in person. Some I also received as comments on certain things I deliberately posted. I must admit that I have encountered some very rude, obnoxious and even belligerently combative people and amazingly enough; they were not Christians. So the law suites of the offended will most likely continue for some time to come.
